There's more rain on the way for Sydney.

Australian correspondent Murray Olds says more than 100 areas are subject to evacuation orders, as months worth of rain has bucketed down in the space of 48 hours.

He told Heather du Plessis-Allan it is likely to be Sydney's wettest year ever recorded.

“The last time it was this much was 1950. They've had nearly 1.8 metres of rain in some parts of Sydney already in 2022. That's not much short of 2 metres of rain in the first six months of the year.”
